TASK Launches Endowment Campaign

On April 16th TASK launched itís first-ever endowment campaign. The goal of the Keeping the Bowl Full Endowment Fund Campaign is to raise $2,000,000 by December 2012 which will mark the 30th anniversary of the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen.

Through sound fiscal management and the success of our TASK FORCE AGAINST HUNGER CAMPAIGN, TASK has been able to set aside $500,000 in a General Use Endowment Fund, reducing the amount that needs to be raised through the campaign to $1,500,000.

An endowment gift to TASK will help to ensure that TASK will be there to feed the hungry of our community for the years ahead. To learn more about the endowment campaign go to: www.trentonsoupkitchen.org or contact Irwin Stoolmacher at (609) 393-0855 or stoolgroup@aol.com.
